I’m excited to share with you the release of Quarryman’s Bride.  I had so much fun researching for this series of independent books set in Minnesota during the late 1800’s and Quarryman’s Bride was definitely a favorite. 

Minnesota is so diverse in cultural heritages that I wanted each book to share a flavor of that blessing.  Quarryman’s Bride takes advantage of the fact that the Scottish were heavily involved in the quarry industry in Minnesota.  Because of this, I researched superstitions, traditions, recipes and crafts that the Scottish were known for.  What a great time that turned out to be.  With a heritage of my own in Scottish ancestors, I found a lot of interesting tidbits to include in the story.

Quarryman’s Bride deals with a young couple Emmalyne and Tavin who are just about to marry when tragedy strikes and Emmalyne’s father puts an end to their engagement. Emmalyne desires to honor her father and mother as the Bible says she should, but that means losing the love of her life.  Years later when the two are once again thrown together, they realize they are still very much in love.  The story deals with the obstacles they must overcome, while also weaving some intrigue surrounding the granite quarry where Tavin works.  In the end, the spiritual theme is all about learning to trust God, and forgive and love, even when we don’t feel like it or think the other person deserves it.  I hope the readers will enjoy!
